Morning Mound Visit: Max Scherzer makes his Dodgers debut

Also, Alex Verdugo needs to get going, what the Cubs could do with Jason Heyward, and another big blow for the Angels

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona Diamondbacks Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Michael J Walsh | Over The Monster: As the Red Sox have fallen to second place in the American League East, several of their best hitters have been struggling, including but not limited to outfielder Alex Verdugo. For the Sox to bounce back and regain the lead in the division, Verdugo has to get back on track.

Al Yellon | Bleed Cubbie Blue: Jason Heyward’s bat was slowly getting better from 2016-2020, but he is having his worst year of his career at the plate, posting a 64 wRC+ to date. But he is still only 32, so could there still be some value if the Cubs decide to move him?

Cole Bailey | Halos Heaven: Another major blow to the Angels, star third baseman Anthony Rendon will undergo season ending surgery to repair a right hip impingement.
